Everyone Will Be Counted in the 2020 Census

Census Partnership Web BadgeThe 2020 Census data collection will begin in mid-March. Data collected in the census will inform the distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds to states and communities each year for things like infrastructure, health care, and food assistance. It is important that everyone respond to the 2020 Census.

Direct federal funds to local communities for schools, roads, and other public services; help communities prepare to meet transportation and emergency readiness needs; and determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and political representation at all levels of government. The census is so important that every household’s response is required by law, and answers are kept confidential. Every household will have the option to respond online, by mail, or by phone. Data will be collected face-to-face from those who do not or cannot respond in another way. More information is available at https://2020census.gov/.

4-H Tech ChangeMakers

Clermont County 4-H teens, Ethan Pfankuch and Luke Uhlenbrock are making a change in their communities through innovation and leadership. Thanks to a partnership between 4‑H and Microsoft, youth can lead positive change in a digital-driven world. Our 4-H Tech ChangeMakers enjoyed spending time at Bethel Woods and Miami Township Lifelong Learning Centers engaging with older adults and helping them navigate technology.  During their visit the Tech Teens answered questions and guided discussion regarding cell phones.  They are looking forward to follow-up visits later this summer and fall.

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

Thank you all for being key to our success.  It was a pleasure to celebrate so many wonderful individuals, members, clubs and 4-H supporters at our annual 4-H Volunteer Appreciation Dinner.  Congratulations to Sharon Francis, 4-H Volunteer of the Year and Clermont County Juvenile Court & Ohio State Highway Patrol Batavia Post, Friends of 4-H Award recipients!
